“Jamie Hutchings’ art has an air of authority and purpose, a sense of space that is quintessentially his.” – Mess and Noise
After a very successful run of shows as part of his ‘Careering Through The Wilderness 1995 – 2015’ tour (which culminated in a full house for his Sydney show), Jamie Hutchings returns to The Camelot Lounge in solo mode on Thursday August 27th.
For long-term fans of the Australian independent music scene, Hutchings has been a constant high quality fixture. He fronted Sydney group Bluebottle Kiss throughout the ‘90’s and ‘00’s, his acclaimed solo work has been both stark and adventurous, whilst in recent times, his new group Infinity Broke have blended hypnotic, pummelling rhythms with barbed wire guitar and have proven to be a sonic feast for lovers of raw experimental rock. They recently released their second album Before Before.
Joining Jamie as special guest is none other than his younger sister – pianist/composer Sophie Hutchings. This marks the first show the siblings have played together in a number of years. Joining her will be cellist Peter Hollo (Fourplay, Raven) for a stirring set of improvisational pieces.
Hutchings has prompted much critical praise worldwide, with MOJO Magazine declaring her work as “stirring, vigorous,[and] grandly melodic”.
